When we use our reason to try to understand something, we are assuming, from the outset, that the thing we are investigating can be understood by reason because it is reasonable and that it will reveal itself in a rational way, that behind the mystery of the thing, there is order and governance that can be discerned.
Both atheists and theists alike, on the question of God’s existence, like to portray their position as the more rational one. Atheists will say, prove it to me. You’re making extraordinary claims, therefore give me irrefutable evidence such that it would be impossible to deny. This, btw, is a standard of proof far in excess of anything science has ever had to demonstrate.

Jesus says that “Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him” (Jn 5:23-24). Yet the Catechism of the Catholic Church says that Muslims, who deny the Incarnation, still “adore the one, merciful God” (CCC 841). How can this be so? Tim Staples explains why there’s not a contradiction here.
Friends, in a universe governed by God’s providence, there is no such thing as “dumb luck” or coincidence. Therefore, his election and his choosing is not arbitrary or exclusive. Rather, when God invites his people to mission, he is not calling them for their own sakes, but for the sake of the whole world.
Why does mathematics work? Think about it… Mathematical entities like numbers, sets, and equations are non-physical and abstract. They can’t cause anything. Yet, for some reason, the physical universe operates…mathematically.
